God’s Work On Our ‘Mess’ – A New Painting from Leighton

May 20, 2016

Leighton flowers

Above is a painting I worked on yesterday of some flowers I saw on a recent day retreat. Last week when I started it was a mess of shapes where nothing stood out. I was disappointed.

But yesterday, with more work and color and contrast, it began to appear in a semblance of its beauty. It still needs more attention to highlights and small places before it’s finished.

But I wish I had a photo from last week to show you the difference!

And isn’t that how God is at work in us?

We’re a mess. But He patiently shapes, adds, removes, covers, and brings out who we are. And the good news is that He is not finished yet!
